"Whenever a government minister is in trouble for misbehaving—which, let’s
face it, is pretty often these days—much reference is made to the Ministerial Code. It is presented as the weight against which the potential sinner will be weighed in the balance and, if found wanting, the writing will be on the wall for
their ministerial career."
Writing in the New Law Journal, John Gould examines the limitations of the Ministerial Code. John Gould is Senior Partner in the firm, and specialises in the analysis and solution of complex regulatory problems, advising regulators, government departments, law enforcement agencies, charities and statutory and professional bodies.
